Bad Science: Pseudoscience, Hoaxes, and Illogical Thinking

4:00 PM, Sunday 27 May 2018 (1 hour 30 minutes)
San Mateo Marriott - Connect 1
When we're reading or writing science fiction, we've got some poetic license, but we want the science to be fundamentally right. When looking for science resources, how do we winnow the chaff from the wheat? As a bonus, really bad science and hoaxers provide excellent fodder for parody SF. (I'm a big fan of Phil Plait, whose "Bad Astronomy " column is a good example of this kind of thinking.)
